Moving Across the Yard & FREAKFEST!!!

Aaron and I were contacted by out landlord if we’d be interested in a larger apartment for + $30 rent.

A dollar more a day and we basically get another room and double the closet space!?!?!?! ? Sweet! Hook us up!!

We signed the new lease and got the keys on Monday. We’ve done a few trips, but Aaron is doing most of the work because of my knee. He is so perfect.

We’ve got until Nov. 1st to get moved. It is nice. :) We’ll have a bit more help this weekend, and I need to call the people we bought the Precor from to help move it across the yard. (I doubt we’ll be able to move it ourselves…)

We are not really “packing” more just filling up laundry baskets, and taking them to the new place, emptying it, then back to the old place - repeat. I've also thrown out so much stuff!! It feels GREAT!!! I also have a huge bag of stuff for good-will. Nothing cleans a place like a move! :-D Once we are out, and the place is cleaned, we’ll turn in our old keys.

We took our gray cat, Sabina, over to see her new digs. She was like. “All of this is MINE!” She was not happy when she had to leave her new “Kingdom,” and return to our smaller place. We’ll be all moved soon, and Sabina will return to her Throne. She is such a spoiled sweetheart!

This weekend is going to be WILD!!!!!!!!!!!

I am so excited for FreakFest! (The 100,000+ people party on State Street in Madison.) I have my weekend itinerary planed: Cosutme contests, karaoke and people watching! :-)

We're going to karaoke tonight. I plan to try some songs as practice for when I do it LIVE ON STAGE at Gomeroke™ tomorrow night!!!!

Gomeroke™ is when you do “karaoke” but with the Live Band, The Gomers, playing the songs!

They know over 2000 songs. But I’ve narrowed my song list to down to these "classics":
  • Crazy Little Thing Called Love - Queen

  • Creep - Radiohead

  • Dream On - Aerosmith

  • D'yer Maker - Led Zeppelin

  • I Touch Myself - The Divinyls

  • I Want You To Want Me - Cheap Trick

  • Me And Bobby McGee - Janis Joplin

  • Rock And Roll - Led Zeppelin

  • Surrender - Cheap Trick

  • Sweet Jane - Velvet Underground

  • Sweet Transvestite - Rocky Horror Picture Show

  • Under Pressure - Queen/Bowie

  • What's Up - 4 Non Blondes

  • You Sexy Thing - Hot Chocolate

  • You're My Best Friend - Queen


  • Please let me know what song you think would rock the crowd the best! (Hurry time is limited! ;)

    Have a Fun and Safe Weekend!!!
